You Know Who's to Blame for All Those Problems at DHS? The Mexicans, That's Who!


The Washington Times reports:

The Department of Homeland Security allowed a man to enter its headquarters last week using a fake Matricula Consular card as identification, despite federal rules that say the Mexican-issued card is not valid ID at government buildings.

Bruce DeCell, a retired New York City police officer, used his phony card—which lists his place of birth as "Tijuana, B.C." and his address as "123 Fraud Blvd." on an incorrectly spelled "Staton Island, N.Y."—to enter the building Wednesday for a meeting with DHS officials.

Somehow, the Times manages to frame this as a story about the dangers of matricula cards. Because obviously, the guard at DHS would have noticed "123 Fraud Blvd." and "Staton Island" on a fake driver's license.
